Applying a new logo to fiberglass coach

The exterior logos on our Tiffin were looking pretty terrible so I ordered new ones from Tiffin. Removing the old logos and make the surface clean was pretty easy, all things considered and I'm just about ready to apply the new ones (pictured).

Has anyone here done this job before?

Is there some trick or technique I need to know about before I do this?

It looks like something you get just one shot at and I'd like to get it right.

!!Thanks!!

PS> I hope I've posted this in the proper forum

Clean the surface area with isopropyl alcohol. If the surface area is below 50 degrees warm slightly with a hair dryer, and warm the emblem also.
Do a couple dry fits first before removing adhesive backing, add a level masking tape line to follow as a guide and stick it on following your tape line. Sit back and have a cold beverage and admire...

Usually using water to allow movement is desirable. Once it is in place exactly where you want it, use a squeegee to remove the water, let set, then remove the outer cover.

Usually there is a backing on the decal and a topping. You spray soapy water on the surface, then remove the backing on the decal and place it on the surface. You can slide it to the correct position and then squeegee the surface. Let it dry a bit and then remove the top layer of paper.

You may want to make sure backing is perfectly straight and use blue tape as frame to line you new decal. Measure twice glue once. You could used tape as hinge as well. Agree light soapy water. You curl it on so not to trap air or crease it.
